Shoes, Glorious Shoes!

My very first post. This is exciting! I don't know what to say, should I start by thanking the little people that made this blog possible? My parents for raising such a shoe-a-holic? My agent... ok, that's getting a little out of control. Let's dive into the shoe fun!

Started this blog at the recommendation of my friend Allison's request. Apparently I am slowly converting her into a shoe lover... or she likes my feet. One way or another, she is now curious as to what clothes I pair with all of my wonderfully fabulous shoes, and what better way to showcase that than... A BLOG!

I actually fell in love with today's pair about 2 months ago when shopping at Rack Room in the Tunica outlets. However, as you probably know - and if you don't, let me enlighten you - Rack Room is Buy One, Get One 50% off every day. I am a firm believer of always taking advantage of this deal, so if I find one pair, I MUST find a second. Otherwise it is my opinion that I was not meant to have those shoes. So I found this pair, and began my hunt for the second pair. After trying several on, and seeing several I liked, but they didn't have my size, I finally gave up.

Cut to a little over a month later. Wolfchase Mall. Decide to go in Rack Room, just to see if they've gotten anything new (plus I'm never at Wolfchase, so they could have more just being a different store location). Found a pair of Guess shoes - that maybe you'll see in a later blog - that made me drool, and once again... the hunt for the second pair began. Same thing, tried several on, some I liked not in my size and then I spun around and it was like one of those scenes in a movie. The glowing light, the heavenly music... there they were! I think I actually shrieked with glee.

So without further ado:
Brand: maripĂ©® Name: Kimber
Store: Rack Room Shoes
Review: 5" heel. Fits pretty true to size, though I will say I have to slide them on just right to make sure my second to last toe isn't squished. But I have pretty long toes, so that could just be me. Other than that, SUPER comfortable.

And the corresponding outfit:
I'll work on my outfit images/posing from now on. This one was rushed at lunch today, and I realize is a little out of focus, but you get the idea!

So there you have it! Hopefully this is the first of many shoe-riffic posts!!! 


  1. Thanks for making me sound like a creeper! But YAY! BLOG!

    I've been dressing cute for work since I'm going into an office twice a week now, but I can't wear heels... I'd love to give it a shot, but I'm too clumsy even in flats.

    1. Hey, if the shoe fits... ok that was a little corny, even for me.

      You'd get used to them if you wore them often. I'm actually clumsier in flats than heels. I guess I'm used to being on my tip-toes.
